Parade, Light Up Williston, Santa–all Saturday

 Williston will welcome the Christmas season this Saturday, Dec. 7 with activities in Heritage Park and a Christmas Parade down Noble Avenue. The parade, with this year’s theme “A Christmas Story,” will kick off at 6 p.m.

Relay For Life Teams will host a Christmas Carnival including food, drinks, entertainment, novelties and activities for children beginning at 4 p.m. at the Heritage Park Pavilion. There will be hot chocolate, corndogs/hotdogs, face painting, letters to Santa, crafts and more.

Proceeds from the carnival and Light Up Festivities will benefit the 2014 Relay For Life of Williston and other local community projects. 

  The annual chili cook off also gets under way (see page 2 for details) at the park prior to the parade.

The festivities will continue with more fun, food and fellowship back at the pavilion following the parade as Miss Williston, Junior Miss Williston and Little Miss Williston flip the switch to Light Up Williston.
